Fixing browser sound on Ubuntu 11.04

I've finally fixed sound via the browser on my Ubuntu 11.04 MythTV media center. MythTV was working fine, but the browsers never even tried to play sound (the sound settings would show NO applications using sound, when Chrome or Firefox should have been).

The information I needed was here and I had no /etc/asound.conf so I had to put the following in ~/.asoundrc -

pcm.pulse { type pulse }
ctl.pulse { type pulse }
pcm.!default { type pulse }
ctl.!default { type pulse }
